Jism 2, a sequel of Jism, has found its soul in the music of this album. What you end up hearing is something which is quite soft, melodious and soothing to ears. Now this has always been a strong forte of the Bhatt camp. Be it Jism, Murder, Raaz, Jannat, Aashiqui – one thing that is common between these is its magical music that invites audience to come to the theaters. Music of ‘Jism 2’ is also diverse and blends sensuality with melody and sufi with rock, hence fetching everybody’s attention.
Jism 2 Music Review: Abhi Abhi
A perfect start is desired by all and that has been well accomplished by the first number, Abhi Abhi. The foreplay of words and music by Arko Pravo Mukherjee and Munish Makhija has been well celebrated in K.K.’s amazing voice. The melodious track has stunning play of poetic lines that gives amazing pleasure to the ears and has a calming effect on you. What is also appreciable about the track is its seamless journey from low notes to higher notes. At the end of it all, it is a well delivered number by KK that would surely see appreciation from all. The duet version has been sung by Shreya Ghoshal along with KK which is as pleasant as its first version. Moreover, Shreya’s voice sounds a bit different as she tries to infuse an element of sensuality into the track.
Jism 2 Music Review: Yeh Kasoor
Just like ‘Abhi Abhi’, another number which starts with beautiful sound of instrumental music on low notes is ‘Yeh Kasoor’. This one has been well decorated by the melodious voice of Sonu Kakkar. It’s a song that takes you in the land of peace and desire. Listen to this one on a medium volume in a room with dim lights while sipping and enjoying your drink and slowly close your eyes. This track by Mithoon has the composer’s stamp all over it but yet it is different with each and every word being quite expressive.
Jism 2 Music Review: Maula
Think of melody, think of a Sufi number and both have a strong correlation that strikes well with Maula. Sufi track has a requirement of strong and melodious vocals, something which is quite evident in Ali Azmat’s voice. Remembering the almighty, Arko Pravo Mukherjee has experimented well with the music while adding an element of modern instrumental music to differentiate it from the rest of the league. Arko uses the already proven hit combination of expression of love with the expression of pain to compliment each other and engage its listeners.
Jism 2 Music Review: Yeh Jism
The next track, Yeh Jism is another experiment (never mind its Turkish inspirations) of both Ali Azmat and Arko Pravo Mukherjee that has been delivered on relatively higher notes while infusing rock well. This one is a relatively shorter track of over three and a half minutes as it seems that the element of sensuality in the album wants to perform a ballet and talk with this world.
Jism 2 Music Review: Darta Hoon
For quite some time now, one hasn’t heard the sound of an electric guitar in a film. Well, it arrives with the next track – Darta Hoon (Adhoora) – that introduces versatile the band Rushk which is responsible for vocals, lyricis as well as the composition. However this one turns out to be quite average, especially when compared to many other better performances in the album that are bound to steal the attention of its listeners.
Jism 2 Music Review: Hey Walla
With the track Hey Walla, the album is painted with colors of international music by Unoosha and Abdul Baasith Saeed. This one seems to have been associated with the album so that it can be played at discotheques and dance parties. The track shapes up as quite an ordinary one though, just as is the case with the song before. Still, Hey Walla may turn up to be quite a useful piece for DJs, as they may use its theme music as filler for track transition.
Jism 2 Music Review: The Last Word
Overall though, Jism 2 a good album which has the trademark stamp of the Mahesh Bhatt banner which embraces good, melodious vocals complemented well by soothing and soft instrumental music. Four of the seven tracks have potential of doing well and making it to the top of this year’s charts (and also remain there for sometime), while earnings both laurels and currency both.
